I have my 429 set at 14 initial and 32 all up.

Starts easily and runs sweet as with these settings.

Thanks Shane, That's what I was looking for.
So from that, I'll need pretty much the same as my 351C 4V. I do have a new distributor set up to give close to those numbers.

Hi Geoff

Yeah same as the cleveland.The info I got from the 460 forum was 12 to 14 was the consensus for initial and a max of 36 all up.
I'm running the MSD ready to run and locked the all up at 32 because of differing fuel quality over here. Didnt want to risk detonation especially when it can be hard to hear on the 385's.

 Thanks mate, awesome.
Once I know for sure what I'm dealing with, I'll repost with results.
Reading my Ford manual, those engines had an initial timing of only 4 degrees for the 429 and 10* for the 460. Why the big difference? the 460 was the same thing pretty much, only .260" longer stroke.
Oh well, it is what it is.
Thanks again,
Geoff.
